Currently grub2-mkconfig (actually /etc/grub.d/10_linux AFAICT) adds boot entries in lexicographic order.  I personally like this, but some poeple don't.

For Fedora systems, it might be nice to have an option (in /etc/default/grub, presumably) to stick all the RPM-provided images either first or last and to sort them from most-recently-installed to least-recently-installed.

rpm -qf --queryformat='%{installdate}' could be used for this purpose.
